    Beautiful architecture, the Basilica is huge and absolutely stunning! The visit is free don't buy the "Skip the line" tickets from the people selling them on the way there, it's not worth it.

    To skip the line: wake up early. Go to the Basilica at 7AM. Don't forget to climb to the Dome if your heart is in good condition :)

    There are two marble spots either side of the obelisk in the middle of the square. If you can stand and look at the colonnade from here, you can only see the one pillar in each row.

    Nos domingos fica lotado entre 11 e 13. Meio dia o papa aparece, logo após a missa, saúda a todos e diz algumas palavras. Apesar do cansaço, por esperar pelo Papa em pé, foi um momento especial...
